I cringe to think of the times when I might have not been the best example or face of Christ to another...especially to my own children. Did my response close up a heart? Did my thoughtlessness cause someone to avoid church or Christ? It is heartbreaking to think how casually I have often taken my position as a Christian. I am trying to remember that I don't know what is happening in these children's lives and if I can make their day just a little bit brighter I want to take advantage of that opportunity. The world is such a hard, cold place...I hope that VBS can be a wonderful, warm, fun, place for these sweet little souls even if it is just for a little while.
Jesus said, "Let the little children come to me,
and do not hinder them,
for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these
~Matthew 19:14 (NIV)
